I found this interesting & informative health website from a fellow blogger: Marietta@ she blogs: FitSugar
There I found a yummy picture and recipe for a "chunky salad". It might be add some shine to the cold winter & I cant wait till this summer when I can make this salad with my garden veggies!!
"I used to be really into salads with all the veggies cut up small. I'd add shredded carrots, finely chopped celery, and itty bitty bits of diced red pepper. If you're used to doing the same thing, switch it up and go for a chunky salad instead. Chop up carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, apples, and whatever else you love into big pieces.
Not only will it take less time to prepare your salad, but chomping down on big pieces of veggies requires more chewing and more effort. That means it will take longer to eat your salad, and you'll end up feeling more satisfied, which translates to eating less food afterward." -FotSugar
Now MY recipe for healthy AND yummy dinner:
1 lb sirloin steak
3 peppers... yellow,red & green
1 small onion
4 small tortillas, warmed in oven
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tbs low sodium soy sauce
3 green onions
2 packets artificial sweetener (optional)
Pre Marinade: Mix sweetener, oil, soy sauce, 1/2 green pepper, pepper, chopped green onions and garlic into bowl. Stir in uncooked meat and marinade for @ least 30 mins. (I prepare this in the AM for the nights dinner and let it marinade all day)
Drain beef from marinade and cut into strips. Coat skillet with olive oil. Chop peppers and onion into slices pieces. Cook till tender, set aside. (IF grilling beef do during peppers/onions cook) If not, re coat skillet with olive oil and cook beef 2 mins on each side till cooked. Drain if needed and return beef, peppers and onions to skillet till warm and mixed.
Warm tortillas in oven. Spoon beef, onions, and peppers onto tortillas then top with cheese, sour cream and salsa. Great served with a side salad or corn bread!
